CAUSES

Most of the problems traditionally associated with damaged, rotting crawl spaces are due to basic flaws in the ways that crawl spaces were designed.

Although it may not be common knowledge, crawl spaces should be dry and free of moisture at all times. If not, it’s possible water and water vapor can lead to issues like mold, wood rot, and pest infestations. Humidity in your crawl space doesn’t just stay in the crawl space, it travels upstairs because of the stack effect. The Philadelphia area has a subtropical climate, so homes in the area battle humidity regularly. It’s important to address the humidity in your crawl space as well as the rest of your home.  

The stack effect, although it seems like a complicated scientific definition when broken down becomes simple and easy to understand the importance it plays in our homes.  

The stack effect is the process by which air flows through your home from the bottom to the top. 

As warm air rises through your house, it eventually escapes through the roof. Building experts estimate even in a highly insulated home, half the air escapes through the roof each hour.
